Las Rosas del Holler~

The Holler is rural and rustic, so when I first moved here, almost seven years ago now, I first planted roses.

It was an act of faith. Roses are civil, and I wasn’t sure this place was.

Somehow I knew from the very beginning to encase their roots in chicken wire to repel the gophers who turned out to be legion.

This first day of spring, The Holler roses are in wild, exuberant bloom!

At night I hoot in communion with the owls, in the morning I wake up to be greeted by the hawks.

This is the most civil place I have ever lived.
Cheers to you and Happy Spring from The Holler’s Bloominng roses~

  1. Oh, how I love and adore roses! This was lovely and a bouquet of knowledge sent our ways. You informed us to protect our roses with chicken wire from the groundhogs and other critters, along with your feeling roses are part of being civilized. I had not thought of either of these before! Smiles, Robin
